Our NO MASKS project will be broadcast this autumn on Sky Arts Freeview with a cast that includes Lorraine Ashbourne (The Crown), Anna Calder-Marshall (Harlots), Anya Chalotra (The Witcher), Russell Tovey (Years and Years) and Eamonn Walker (Chicago Fire), with Elijah Melhado from Stratford East's Youth Theatre and directed by Artistic Director Nadia Fall.
Weaved together with imagined narratives, written by Nadia Fall and Rebecca Lenkiewicz, NO MASKS is a testament to the dedication of key workers during the COVID crisis as well as an exploration of our shared hopes and fears.
NO MASKS will air on Sky Arts on Wed 30 Sep at 9pm. Sky Arts is now free for everyone across the UK to watch on Freeview and Freesat. It's also available on streaming service NOW TV.
Our NO MASKS project originally began in April 2020, where we called out to local key workers to submit their stories, which have been featured on our vitual wall of stories - view them here.
